When it comes to daily fantasy sports (DFS), and basketball in particular, there’s a lot of data out there that can help you make lineup decisions. One source of helpful data is FantasyLabs, an analytical sports resource site that features DFS projections as part of its stock of premium content.
|SF Khris Middleton (MILvsDET)||$3,900||22.9||21.6||30.9||7.4|
The Bucks desperately missed their leading scorer from last season and the shooting he provides, and they need it more than ever with the emerging Jabari Parker sadly finished for the year. Middleton is on a minutes restriction as he works himself back into game shape after missing the first 50-some games of the season, but even seeing around 20 minutes, he’s quite capable of hitting value at this ridiculously low price. Roll him out if you need salary relief.
|C Nikola Jokic (DENvsGSW)||$9,200||34.2||46.9||63.9||32.6|
Jokic is on an absurd tear of late, with 52+ DK points in five of the Nuggets’ past eight games. He’s really been showcasing his smooth all-around game, and his price has rocketed past $9,000. Still, the fact that it hasn’t seen a marked increase tonight in a game with a total of 240.5, by far the night’s highest, is a bit odd. Take advantage of that against a Golden State team that’s soft inside at the moment without enforcers Zaza Pachulia and David West.
|PF/C Frank Kaminsky (CHAvsPHI)||$5,700||33.7||29.2||42.7||15.1|
Cody Zeller’s already been announced out with a quad injury, so Kaminsky will grab the majority of the frontcourt minutes again for Charlotte after the team traded away Spencer Hawes. Kaminsky’s price has rocketed up to a season high, but there’s clearly still some upside here as he has put up around 40 DK points in three of the past four games that Zeller sat. The value is starting to diminish here for sure as his price starts to reflect his new role, but if Kaminsky gets hot from the outside against the lackluster defense of Ersan Ilyasova or a guy in Nerlens Noel not used to playing on the perimeter, he could deliver another big game.
